When Dodger (Astin) accidentally releases the Kids from their magical trash can prison, all smell breaks loose. Despite their offensive personal habitsand attitude problemsDodger soon becomes fond of the Kids.

I really can't recommend this film enough to those of you who enjoy beautifully written, meticulously acted and stunningly visual films. The animatronics took my breath away as did the rewarding and at times challenging script. Valerie Vomit's own sub-plot is heart wrenching to say the least, as she struggles with her nauseous disposition only to overcome her weakness in the penultimate scene which was a real bittersweet moment of elation and regret. We follow these characters as they progress from prisoners to free citizens and I think this is the most satisfying of heroic transformations I have ever witnessed on film. Buy this movie.

"The Garbage Pail Kids Movie" is based on the immensely popular and offensive Cabbage Patch Kids parodies. In the '80s,the Garbage Pail Kids had the forbidden fruit appeal. Parents hated them--kids,of course,collected and enjoyed them. So,they decided to turn a trading card game INTO A MOVIE (this has taken a post-modern form with Yu-Gi-Oh! Grand Championship Season 5 Set ) The Kids will make you literally nauseated,they're that repellent. The lead is played by Mackenzie Astin,whose famous brother Sean,has starred in a far better fantasy series. "Garbage Pail Kids" will make you lose your popcorn. It's that bad. Avoid it for the kids. Avoid it for the future.

Films can come from many inspirations and sources. There are novels, plays, true stories, comic-books, video games and...trading cards? The woefully mis-handled Mars Attacks was based on a brilliant trading card series and it was hardly high art. A lower-lever trading card such as the Garbage Pail Kids is hardly likely to make great cinema. If this sort of thing cannot appeal to you (I have broad tastes and I'm a bit too understanding of flawed films) then don't even bother watching.

I wanted to rent this movie when I was a kid but my grandmother (who always evaluated the videos first) thought it looked quite inappropriate (I subsequently went for Rambo: First Blood Part II, which she thought was more fitting for a 7-year-old). Since it's one and only incarnation on video tape in the late-80s (theatrical prints promptly vanished) this film has been totally non-existant. Luckily (if you like this sort of thing) MGM bought the rights, found a dusty print and spruced it up to give us a brand new digital incarnation of The Garbage Pail Kids Movie. With erm...garbage like this getting a DVD release I must ask where the hell is Bigfoot and Howard the Duck?

Direcor Rodney Amateau (a rather fitting-sounding surname) could have made this an animated movie (eg Care Bears) but no, he actually had the audacity and nerve to attempt it in live action. Note how I said 'attempt' and not 'succeed'.

The animatronics are just horrible. Where is Jim Henson when you need him? So bad is the puppetry that the kids cannot even close their mouths and no one even bothered to lip-sync the dialogue. They are also disgusting beyond reason (as one who is familiar with the trading cards would expect).

I recently rented this movie from a non-franchised video rental place that specialised in hard to find films. Movies like this are often unintentionally funny. While this movie made me laugh, it also left me thinking "This was a really weird movie to market at little kids."

From one of the early shots of a kid's wiggling toes that are about to be eaten by a dwarf alligator, you know your in for a weird ride.

The plot is this: Theres a kid who hangs around an antique shop. The shop is owned by a magician who keeps the Garbage Pail Kids in his store in a garbage pail. The kid is always getting chased and beaten up by these bullies. One of the bullies is actually named "Juice." THATS HIS REAL NAME! Anyways, this kid ends up falling for this marginally attractive girl with poodle-frizz hair who is sort of Juice's kept woman. The kid uses the Garbage Pail Kids to create clothes for this girl who's also a fashion designer. Then when the clothes take off she tries to swindle him out of his rights to the clothes. With the help of the Garbage Pail Kids and a motorcycle gang, the kid wins in the end. Tangerine (the girl) apologizes but boy tells her "I just don't find you pretty anymore." Maybe its the big hair or the unitard, but it's rather hard to see her as attractive in the first place.

The weird thing is that this movie's just too out there for some 8 year old kid to watch - its not that theres any R-Rated stuff in there, but theres just this really, really creepy vibe between the lines of the story.

Not surprisingly, this movie was a colossal failure. It came out in 1987, and if my memory serves me correctly the GPK fad peaked around '86, which already sets this movie out on a bad foot.

A movie based on trading cards that spoofed Cabbage Patch Kids... only in the 80s would something like this get the green light. While one might expect the production value to be on an Axe'm level (Axe'm is probably the worst film ever distributed) Garbage Pail Kids manages to elevate itself just above an episode of Monsters, but not quite as memorable as some other utterly forgotten films such as Dead Heat, Return to Oz, and The Monster Squad. However, there's 3 reasons to watch this film. They are:

1. When Windy farts off a man's mustache.

2. When Valerie Vomit... vomits.

3. The 'Too' asylum... as in the shameless politically incorrect prison for the too old and crippled who apparently get thrown into a giant trash compactor.

The concept alone of this actually being a film is so absurd, it actually has merit. As I watched this film in total confusion by its sheer existence, the only conclusion I could come to is that it should be remade with more money, better animatronics, and be more fearless with an R rating. It's just too ridiculous to ignore.
